    19 CFR § 163.5
    (b) Alternative method of storage –
    (1) General. Any of the persons listed in § 163.2 may maintain any records, other than records required to be maintained as original records under laws and regulations administered by other Federal government agencies, in an alternative format, provided that the person gives advance written notification of such alternative storage method to the Regulatory Audit, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 2001 Cross Beam Dr., Charlotte, North Carolina 28217 …

    However, the 1998 version of this rule provided as follows:
    Any of the persons listed in § 163.2 may maintain any records, other than records required to be maintained as original records under laws and
    regulations administered by other Federal government agencies, in an
    alternative format, provided that the person gives advance written notification of such alternative storage method to the Director, Regulatory Audit Division, U.S. Customs Service, 909 S.E. First Avenue, Miami, Florida 33131 …

    In June 2012, paragraph (b)(3) was amended by removing the words ‘‘the Miami regulatory audit field office’’ and adding in their place the language, ‘‘Regulatory Audit, Office of International Trade, Customs and Border Protection, 2001 Cross Beam Drive, Charlotte, North
    Carolina 28217’’

    The answer to this question has therefore changed now due to the amendment of the regulations. Choice C was the correct answer at the time that this question was asked in a test because the reference material at that time provided C as the correct answer choice.
